The first six episodes of Staged arrived on the BBC during the height of the coronavirus pandemic when families across the UK were in lockdown.

In October fans were thrilled to hear the series had been renewed for a second season and the BBC has just announced the second season will air in the New Year.

The first episode of season two will air on BBC One on Monday, January 4, at 9.45pm.

The news was announced alongside a hilarious video of Tennant and Sheen discussing the prospect of their characters being recast.

Fans are in desperate need of a positive start to 2021 following what has been a very difficult year and the teaser for season two has already brought joy.

In the short video, Tennant asked Sheen if he had ever been replaced before, and Sheen said it had happened once.

Sheen said he had planned to take action against the person who had replaced him, saying he was going to “befriend him slowly” before getting his revenge.

Fans are keen to see what else the actors have in store and they will be pleased to hear both of their partners will be reprising their roles.

Georgia Tennant, David’s wife, and Anna Lundberg, Sheen’s girlfriend, will be back alongside Nina Susanna as Jo, who funds the play mentioned in season one.

Director of the play Simon Evans will be back, as well as his sister Lucy Eaton.

Some new cast members will be bringing even more laughs in the second season with Ben Schwartz signing up as the assistant of an American agent.

Schwartz is known for his roles in Parks and Recreation, and House of Lies.

Fans have already taken to social media to express their excitement over the new season with one saying on Twitter: “David and Michael are the perfect team, just hilarious.”

Another fan called it the “best Christmas present ever.”

The synopsis for the first episode reads: “Whilst appearing on a chat show Michael and David discover someone they respect is not a fan of their work.

“David’s plans to go to work and Michael’s plans to visit a friend abroad are both scuppered by last minute travel rule changes. Some news regarding a work opportunity for the pair turns sour.”

The second season is understood to be made up of eight episodes, so fans can look forward to even more content from the hilarious pair.

The 20-minute episodes which made up the first season brought short snippets of fun during a turbulent time, and there are high hopes for season two.

Each episode, directed by Simon Evans, will be given a unique title expected to confirmed closer to the release date.

Critics said the series had been a welcome distraction amid the coronavirus pandemic and it was described as compelling TV during lockdown.

The series even made its way to the US on Hulu in September 2020, but there is no release date for season two in the US just yet.

Post-Christmas blues will be a thing of the past on Monday evenings for fans in the UK, and it is hoped, like the first season, two episodes will air back to back.

Staged season 2 will air on BBC One on January 4
